Description of problem:
After installing and booting into the newly updated kernel-2.4.18-24.8.0, no
sound can be produced through either ESD or OSS.  I have an on-board sound card
82801AA AC'97.  I haven't had any problem with it in any other version/kernel of
Red Hat Linux including Phoebie.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot into kernel-2.4.18-24.8.0
2. Open any program that produces sound via ESD or OSS

Actual Results:  No sound can be heard or the app gives error message about the
output  device.

Expected Results:  Sound should be produced.

Additional info:

I haven't tried arts.

I am having the same problem on RH 8 as well. Selecting a previous kernel on 
the GRUB bootup screen will bring sound back.
